    Weekends on the move: The last stop of Titanic, Cobh

    If the name Cobh rings a bell, you’re either a big fan of the history of the Titanic, or you’ve been reading my blog for a really long time (if the latter, then kudos to you!). I wrote about Cobh four years ago when V. and I visited this place. But at that time we weren’t very lucky about weather, so when the last Sunday in August last year the weather got heavenly, it was clear where we were going. Cobh is one of the places I’ve visited many times since I live in Ireland. Almost every time in really nice weather, however, every time we just parked for a…

    Weekends on the move: one hot day in Howth

    Whenever you are I thought I could take you back in time with me to one of the hottest days we had last summer. Last weekend in August, after years of promising, I took my mum to Howth, peninsula on the north side of Dublin. Howth is a popular spot not only for tourists but also for locals. As soon as there’s a bit of sunshine in Dublin, they all jump onto Dart and ride right into the heart of Howth Harbor. Honestly, I was glad we visited at the end of August, I can’t imagine how crowded Dart and the peninsula must have been during the heatwave in July.…

    Why you should add Waterford City to your Irish itinerary and what to see in Waterford

    As the oldest city in Ireland, Waterford has gone through a lot – from the founding of the Vikings through the economic crisis and total decline in 2008, or the construction of a special triangular roof in the middle of the city. In addition to a diverse history, it also offers art and beautiful nature. In this article, I will try to convince you to add the city of Waterford to your Irish itinerary. This article is not happening only because I live in Waterford and I want to (finally) introduce it to you, but also because we here in Ireland have not been able to travel more than 5…

    Weekends on the move: The Vee view and volcanic Blackwater lake

    One sunny Saturday morning in June, we decided to visit the Knockmealdown Mountains and Blackwater Lake after a long time. If you read my other articles from time to time, these names probably tell you something, because I’ve mentioned them in the past – and now I’ll show you. The Knockmealdown Mountains are located on the border of County Wateford and Tipperary as well as the Comeragh Mountains – they are the only two large mountains in County Waterford. In both cases, the highest points of these mountains are located in Wateford, where Knockmealdown holds the lead in terms of height. Interestingly, both mountains have large lakes, just in the…

    Weekends on the move: Kilkenny Town

    After three years, I visited once again probably the most Irish town on the island, Kilkenny. I’ve been here several times, but this time we discovered new places and I took tons of photos for you! Kilkenny is located inland and is known as the city of hurlers. Hurling is the Irish national sport and Kilkenny has won it the most times (36 times). Apart from hurling, Kilkenny boasts a beautiful castle and, most of all, in my humble opinion, a cute town. My mum and I planned the trip on June 6, Sunday. It was the first time since the pandemic that we went somewhere by public transport. However,…

    Athens 2017: In the footsteps of ancient Greece

    Four years ago, I fulfilled a big travel dream and visited Athens. Sit back and get ready for really crazy stories, 150 photos of the Acropolis from various parts of the city and 100 photos of the Olympic Stadium. Beware of Athens aka our accommodation failOur Athenian itineraryThe real face of Athens I have been interested in Greece since primary school, when the teacher introduced us and poured into our heads its ancient history. I don’t know why, but I’ve always liked the idea that thousands of years ago people lived the way they wanted, by the sea, in the heat and in their free time, either speculating over the…

    St. Patrick’s Day in Ireland’s oldest city, Waterford, during a global pandemic

    The title of the article sounds pretty apocalyptic, but don’t worry, everything turned out well! I would like to look back on previous years and at the same time compare my experience with this year. And I also have a lot of great photos for you, so keep reading. Patrick’s Day takes place every year on March 17. Which was nice this year, for example, because I had time off in the middle of the week. Patrick’s Day is also kicking off bank holidays in Ireland – it’s really a long way from the beginning of January to the middle of March without the holidays. As for history, I’m not…

    Ibiza off season

    The winter in Ireland did not disappoint again – it is raining like crazy. To survive this down season, I have decided to go back in time and share with you my trip to Ibiza in the spring of 2016. Before I dive into the stories and photos, you probably wonder who would voluteraly go to Ibiza and even off season. Well… me haha I haven’t been to Spain as such yet (but I have it on my list!), at that time I needed the sun and I wanted something extra, because I had city trips ahead of me. Ryanair had sales again and Ibiza smiled at me at the…

    Waterford Walls: a street art paradise in the oldest Irish city

    You don’t have to have a bachelor’s degree from art school, or wander around the train stations with a spray can in hand at night to appreciate what I’m about to show you. Okay, so what is Waterford Walls and why I won’t shut up about it? Waterford Walls is a street art festival that has been held in the Irish city of Waterford for six years. Although Waterford is the oldest city in Ireland, it has fallen economically after 2008 and unfortunately it is still trying to get out of it (every second store in the city is closed and the situation is not improving after Corona). Despite the…

    My fav spots in Ireland

    This will totally be a trip down the Memory Lane. Recently I woke up with a feeling when I just want to go somewhere where I haven’t been for a long time, preferably in nature (I blame you, you beautiful warm sun). Well, considering what’s happening now and also that I’m stranded in Dublin and I’m not that close to nature (and somehow I miss the real Czech one), I decided to aerate oooold photos and show you various Irish nooks. To the sounds of Selena Gomez’s new album, I’m going to rummage through my hard drive and I’m saying in advance that I don’t know what awaits us. And…
